So I am at a perennial march madness party and brought a few growlers of my own homebrew. Now that it has run out I poured a beer from the keg. Strong banana esters hit me in the face. I asked others that are drinking and they do not get it at all, and these are guys who drink craft beer on occasion and bmc when they are "binge" drinking.

Have I really evolved so much that I am picking out the faults in bud light or am I imagining things?

Once you go Craft --- it's hard to go back!

And why in the world would you want to?

Ehh, budlight... My go to BMC is now budweiser if someone is buying, otherwise it's blue moon if there are no seasonals or craft beers available. That said, I've never picked out "faults" like what you're talking about in any of the mass produced commercial beers. They're usually pretty consistent.

My guess is you have evolved.

Now you must evolve again and believe bud light is good again. That is the next step. As in, it's so bad it's gone back to good again. This takes training and remembering that a business that stays in business is above your opinion.
